"I don't know where he got that, but I didn't say [anything] about [being] hurt", Severino said. If he pitches poorly, it'll be because he doesn't execute, not because he gets spooked. "We start at home, so our confidence is pretty high".
"No choice but to flush", manager Aaron Boone said. So we feel like he's kind of lined up and ready to go for tomorrow.
Sabathia, probably moreso than any other pitcher on the staff, performs better with extra rest.
Those who pitched in relief for the Red Sox in the DS allowed seven runs in 17 innings (a 3.71 ERA) with 17 strikeouts and 11 walks. Does that bode well for tonight?
"I was just trying to get it over the plate", Romine said. He made 29 starts this season and in only 15 of them did he throw more than five innings.
When Boone brought in Zach Britton to start the fourth, Christian Vazquez led off with an opposite-field drive over the short porch in right field for his first career postseason homer. Furthermore, the Red Sox are really good, and Sabathia has a significant third time through the order penalty.
"No, I didn't envision myself getting into the playoffs in this role", he said. The situation is dire.
Melania Trump Admits She Doesn't Agree With All Of Donald's Tweets
Trump expressed some transparency with reporters in Egypt about her husband President Donald Trump's own Twitter comments. Melania Trump , 48, has just touched back down on United States soil after a week-long tour around Africa.
With Luis Severino scheduled to pitch Game 3 of the ALDS, there's nothing like a bit of gossip surrounding the Yankees ace to get the juices flowing. That makes a huge difference, knowing that you're going to be in the game.
Gary Sanchez fell behind 0-2 in the count, worked it full and sent a drive that had the crowd roaring only for Andrew Benintendi to catch it on the left-field warning track, a few feet short of a game-ending grand slam.
Craig Kimbrel was on the verge of a meltdown in the ninth inning Tuesday night, when two runs scored to cut the 4-1 lead he began the frame with to 4-3. After the game, Severino pushed back against the comments and denied having warmed up late.
"It was a good night overall for everyone".
Now down 2-1 and in danger of being eliminated in the best-of-five matchup, they'll turn to CC Sabathia on Tuesday night in hopes of saving their season.
Whether fatigue or dead-arm played any part in Severino's less than stellar summer, Martinez's supposed declaration of an injury to the Yankees No. 1 pitcher is not only inflammatory if untrue, but insanely underhanded if indeed accurate - considering Severino credited much of his 2017 success to the Hall of Famer. That should've been in the case last night. He noted that Darling appeared aware that he might be coming off as a curmudgeon - the analyst went on to assert during Monday's telecast that he was a fan of bat-flips and "letting the kids play" - only to claim that "you have to judge for yourself, if you feel like rubbing it in starts to rub you the wrong way". His first 79 appearances in the majors came out of the bullpen.
